defining the task.

contentment [kuhn-tent-muhnt]:

1. mentally or emotionally satisfied with things as they are

2. assenting to or willing to accept circumstances, a proposed course of action, etc

Yikes ~ I think I have taken on quite the challenge.  Mentally or emotionally satisfied with things as the are…RIGHT NOW???  I can’t even begin to picture what that looks like.  Does that mean I don’t push for change?  Do I relinquish my hopes for the future that easily play out into my present thoughts, which influence my emotions, which spurn me to action (can’t you see the vicious cycle!)?  I’m going to have to meditate on the reality of step number one of contentment as it relates to me personally.  Step number two is a less complicated pill to swallow in my book.  Accept things as they are ~ I can do this.  That doesn’t dictate life won’t change, it merely means “it is what it is” in this present moment and I am willing to acknowledge and embrace that ~ presently.
